Ok , heres a bit of my pics, still buried but cant drag my feet forever. Time to get to work on bows. Shane making yellow wood chips
Krister on the first part of his Yew longbow
I dint tell the guys coming that we would be filming a show on the Bow build Bear hunt 2009 for the Backland Outdoors show, boy were they surprised , heres Scott Anderson starting out on an osage flatbow
Krister was hard at work. What a great setting to be working on bows Heres a good one of Josh and his Hickory flatbow My son Jesse showing the guys what a bow is supposed to look like with his Vine maple bow he made this last winter. Curtis helping Jesse show the guys.
Good job on the pics Ted.. Sorry that I'm no help. I ended up booking two extra hunts I wasn't expecting and I've been out scouting and doing prep work for todays arriving group. Keep the pics coming. I'll jump in where I can. Just don't ask for pics of the bear I killed.
That ain'y my bear. Mine has a sore leg and a new respect for carbon.
Is that Shanes bear? Gotta be one Ted slayed.
I tried to email the bear vid to Sal yesterday, I just can't seem to figure this stuff out. It's not as simple as stick and string. Sorry.CK

Yeah Curtis , good guess. I dont have pics of Shanes bear, where is Shane? Shane you out there buddy? Krister had several encounters as well but either the bears werent in the right spot ( sneaky bear) or he was shaking so bad he couldnt get to anchor. He told me at one point the bears could hear him swallow. Scott had both a big black and a big brown in several times but neither would give him the perfect shot, at one point the black one was at 8 yards but wouldnt open up that front leg , kudos for him not just shooting, 8 yards on the ground and having the stones to hold out. Speaking of stones I hope Curtis can get that video on here , he was just about dancing distance from the bear at one point .
Not a recommended way to pack out a bear , but I had two more in the vicinity and didnt want to mess up the spot for someone else. Notice the scar on the forehead, found some cedar arrow splinters under the scalp as well , someone has a good story. Weitas crew, Jesse, Lois, Ted and Gary. Ted doing some the work. Jesse with the musical entertainment.
